SmartView is perfectly designed for building a video wall of monitors showing all your video sources such as live production switchers, video servers, routers and cameras! Being incredibly thin it’s perfect for portable setups where you need to save space. You can install SmartView monitors in fly away kits, broadcast trucks, equipment racks, edit desks or anywhere you need good quality video monitoring or scopes. SmartView’s low profile and low power design is an ideal solution for broadcast trucks where equipment is tightly packed and heat can be a problem. SmartView monitoring doesn't suffer from this problem and you have more space available!
Decks and Servers
SmartView is ideal for use with broadcast decks or video servers, simply mount them in a rack and connect via SDI to see what the deck or server is playing or recording. With multiple servers all playing back at the same time, SmartView helps you keep track of what's going on and to ensure each server is working correctly. Many broadcast decks include video level adjustments and you often need to accurately set up these adjustments to ensure your video levels are correct. SmartScope Duo 4K is perfect for this situation because you can install it above the deck, set it to waveform and vector display, and then you can adjust deck outputs in the traditional way!
Connecting to Routers
The best solution for monitoring every device in your facility is to connect a SmartView HD and a SmartScope Duo 4K to one of the outputs of your router, and then switch various sources into the monitors to see any source you choose! SmartView HD will give you full resolution monitoring from all your sources and in any video standard you route in. SmartScope Duo 4K is the perfect companion to SmartView HD because it can be set up to show waveform and vector display, so you get a full HD monitor as well as full choice of scopes of your video signals. SmartScope Duo 4K can also be used on its own with one screen to monitor video input and the other for audio scope, pair this with Blackmagic Audio Monitor and keep track of not only video but also the audio levels in the SDI output of the router from any source.
Connecting to Live
SmartView monitors are the ideal choice for ATEM production switchers to monitor program, preview or multiview output. SmartScope Duo 4K is a perfect for program monitoring on a live production switchers where one of the screens can be audio scope, and the other set to waveform to monitor video levels. You can see at all times what your video and audio levels are, and be sure downstream program feeds won't have quality problems. If you're working with CCU's and adjusting camera color and balance on live production switchers, then simply loop the camera SDI feed via a SmartScope Duo 4K and you can set to RGB Parade and Vectorscope on each screen, so you can see your color balance and video levels as you adjust each camera!
